The End

Almost four years to the day since we started making music together, we have decided to stop. It wasn’t an easy decision, but we feel like the time has come to say our goodbyes.

However sad we all are, we would like to celebrate MAY68 all together one more time this Saturday at the ‘White Lies’ single launch and invite everyone to join us at Islington Mill for a last dance. You have been truly wonderful over the years and you all deserve to be thanked for the support and love that helped us becoming the band that we are. So thank you very very very much.

See you on Saturday.

Competition Winners

It is time to reveal the winners of our remix competition. We are pleased to announce that The Kill Van Kulls came up with a belting rework of our new single “White Lies”. It’s a blissed out sun drenched chill wave take on the original which seems a perfect way to wave goodbye to the summer months that have just left us.

The Kill Van Kulls are now getting stuck in to some serious album sessions so expect to hear good things from them soon.

Mark Reeder – Five Point One

Mark Reeder is a name few of you may be familiar with but has been a driving force beneath many sides of music for the last 35 years.

Hailing from Manchester, Mark formed a punk band in 1977 with Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall before moving to Berlin where he is now based. In the early 80’s he became Factory Records German representative in Berlin and also hosted a Berlin special of ‘The Tube’. During the 90’s Mark was at the forefront of Trance movement, playing a large part in the success of Paul Van Dyk.

This year sees the release of his new album “Five Point One”, a remix album created solely for the tech savvy 5.1 surround system, bringing a new listening experience to the listener. The album features Mark’s remixes of the likes of Depeche Mode, The Pet Shop Boys and Bad Lieutenant. Also included on the album is Mark’s remix of our latest single “The Prisoner” which can be heard on the link below.

The album will be released in mid October on Kennen.
